*"...all the signs suggest that the main principles of thermodynamics from the classical theory will not only rule unchallenged but will more probably become correspondingly extended."*- Max Planck "The Genesis and Present State of Development of the Quantum Theory" Nobel Lecture, June 2, 1920

*"...the deep impression that classical thermodynamics made upon me. It is the only physical theory of universal content concerning which I am convinced that, within the framework of the applicability of its basic concepts, it will never be overthrown."*- Albert Einstein "Autobiographical Notes"
